Songs for getting outside (feat. Black Girls Do Bike)

Get outside and turn up these jams from Black Girls Do Bike, a community for women of color to share in the joy of cycling

Songs for getting outside

Fellowship. Fitness. Freedom.

Those are the three pillars of Monica Garrison’s Black Girls Do Bike (BGDB), a growing community of women of color who’ve been sharing in the passion — and joy — of cycling together since 2013. With more than 100 local chapters across the world, BGDB is a place for lady cyclists to support each other, promote skill-sharing, and help new riders break down barriers to entry into the larger cycling community.

As BGDB’s founder, executive director, and chief storyteller, Monica knows a thing or two about inspiring more folks to get outside and rejoice in the great outdoors — which is why we hit her up for a few song recommendations!

Check out her top tunes for getting outside in this playlist, and follow along here to learn how BGDB encourages bike advocacy, education, volunteerism, and safety in communities everywhere.
